ABOUT THE COLLEGE AND THE DEPARTMENT

California State University, Fullerton is a minority-serving institution and an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum. CSUF fosters an inclusive environment within which students, faculty, staff, and administrators thrive. Individuals advancing the University’s strategic diversity goals and those from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

The College
College of Communications strives to prepare communicators to advance a democratic society by undertaking critical academic inquiry, serving the community, and engaging in ethical and professional practice across all communications industries and in related fields.

The Department
The mission of the Department is to provide students with an understanding of communication processes in a culturally diverse society. An in-depth understanding of communication processes brings a number of benefits, including the ability to analyze communication barriers and the competency to facilitate effective communication between individuals, within organizations, between organizations and their customers or constituencies, and across cultures.

The Department provides a strong foundation of theory in its degree programs, and each program gives its students the experience they need in applying theory in a variety of contexts. Knowledge and skills are developed in the classroom through the use of case study methodology and other learning strategies and through internship experiences, which allow students to apply their knowledge and skills in their eventual work settings. Some students are encouraged to pursue careers in college and university teaching and research by continuing their education at the doctoral level in the field of communication studies or communicative disorders. Finally, the department provides guidance for students interested in pursuing graduate and professional studies in fields related to communication.
